I had to make myself take a new perspective on food, on life, on why I was fasting. I want……NO……I NEED too much from God to be fussing about a dozen eggs and some salad dressing. So, I decided that I was NOT going to complain but that I would ask Him to help me so that I could go forth. I have an Instagram page, dedicated to glutenless living (feel free to follow @gottabe_glutenfree), where I post most things that I eat (both recipes and store bought foods); so, I posted a few vegan recipes that I’ve made over the past week or so. One of my lovely diva friends suggested that I share a few (follow her blog seasons565.wordpress.com). I decided that it was a good idea, not because I want to share my cooking skills, but more so, because sometimes, we put so much emphasis on food and what we aren’t willing to give up, that we can’t focus past it.

In fact, I used to be that way, but I’ve learned to give up certain foods because my health is more important to me than a few strips of bacon and a pork chop.
Uh huh…so….yeah….sometimes you gotta push the plate away. It’s like Jesus told the devil when he tried tempting Him, “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” (Luke 4:4).

I don’t know………..maybe you’re fasting from certain foods; maybe you need to eat healthier; maybe you’re just trying to see what the heck I’m talking about this time (HA!). Whatever the reason, here are a few dairy free, gluten free, vegan recipes for the road. Enjoy! 🙂
P.S…This post was a little more lengthy that I’d originally planned so, see the next post for recipes. 😉
